President Donald Trump on Friday afternoon announced that he was replacing White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus. In a late Friday tweet, Trump announced that Gen. John Kelly, who currently serves as head of the Department of Homeland Security, will now serve as the White House’s chief of staff.



Scaramochi wins this round. Time will tell if this stops the leaks. Getting crowded under the bus.
Be interesting to see the ramifications of this with the GOP.

The battle is really going to be versus Bannon IMHO.

This was kind of expected and lets face it the transition was a debacle no matter what side you were on. I'm quite shocked he lasted this long.

The side view is now how Trump et al. move agendas forward. Priebus was for better or for once one of his links to the GOP establishment. Sessions was too. The House and Senate are warning Trump about Sessions and Priebus is gone.

I wonder if there was an internal battle over firing Mueller

Edit to add: It will not stop the leaks. In fact it may make it worse in the short term. Unless he replaces EVERY since staffer in every position including the departments, the leaks will continue unabated

Hmmm, called it!

Smart move. Big finger to the GOP and absolutely the right move after attempting to do something about health insurance. If there is going to be tax reform, he's going to have to work with dems to get it done.

A General as Chief of Staff will run things a lot more orderly i would think. And the WH needs some order and discipline. Bannon could be next..What good does he do anyway.

I feel there is much more drama and trauma to come out of the Trump WH. I'm quite looking forward to the Jared/Ivanka/junior vs. Bannon dust up.

Say what you will, Bannon was the brains behind the Trump train and when he is gone; then the real fun begins.

Moochie's days are also numbered...Ivanka hates his guts.

All the literature in research into working in hostile environments would indicate that the remaining staffers will have greater anxiety, fear, angst, and aversion toward the perceived source of the noxious stimuli - i.e. they will bitterly resent Trump at some level, and will tend towards passive aggressive behavior.

So, more leaks, sabotage, shoddy work products, "who gives a f*ck attitudes, followed by more betrayal from Trump, and the cycle continues.

Sit back and enjoy. I will savor the next two years as they drag Trump through the mud, and he winds up in the dock in the Senate, watching the impeachment (his) of the century. This will be high entertainment.

If they won't work with Trump then Trump has no other choice but to expose all of the dirty rats on both sides, he is going to be a one term president and he knows this that is why he don't care any more.

Buckle up buckaroos, it's going to be a crazy ride.

Hiring the DHS head for your CHIEF of STAFF

To fix your plumbing.

Second source -

Breaking on Foxnews now - Reince Priebus is out as Chief of Staff. Replaced by DHS Secretary Kelly.

John Kelly replaces Reince Priebus as White House chief of staff

They need someone in charge. Reince didnt seem to have anything under control.

a reply to: FredT
He is suppose to be on the chopping block. Reince was gone a few days after the Smooch said he needed to go. He said the same thing about Bannon.

So, is Kelly going to do 2 jobs, Chief of Staff and Secretary of Homeland Security? Or is Trump going to go through the whole appointment process through the Senate, all over again, to find a new Secretary of Homeland Security?

I wonder if Sheriff Clark is on Trump's short list for the new Secretary of Homeland Security?

Just Chief of Staff. If the Senate doesnt want to confirm anyone else this summer trump can just do a recess appointment and let Congress confirm his nominee when they come back to break from break.

I know right? It's almost like hiring a #ing community organizer to be president of the US.

He was doing a great job as head of DHS. You know things are bad when you have to send homeland security to the white house.

I don't think anyone cares what the Senate WANTS to do this summer......

Does Trump have a nominee to put before them, or a temporary recess appointment for the Cabinet position of Secretary of Homeland Security? Seems like an important position to leave unfilled.

Hire a clown..expect a circus.

Reince Priebus never gave me cause to respect him. This appears to be just one stooge hitting the other with a frying pan.

Good for brief, chuckling attention, but when does the slap-stick end and a real POTUS emerge?
